Run for the Health of It {4 Miler}

My friend, Amy, posted on facebook about a cheap race;  it was $10 before promo code with tons of swag.  In addition, there are known to be a lot of vendors on site.  I signed up without knowing I could make the race since we often go out of town over Labor Day weekend.

Since we were home, I headed out alone for this race.  I hadn't had any intentions of "racing" since I was starting to get calf pain again.

Holding back sounds fine and dandy until the race starts.  It was difficult to chat during the race since it was on a narrow bike path so in my earbuds went.  From there, I took off. (Thanks Trick Daddy)

When I got to midpoint, I couldn't get my breathing under control no matter how hard I tried.  I don't remember much of anything other than praying for the end.  

Just as usual, I didn't have any gas left in my tank to try to sprint the last stretch of the race.  I did get passed by a young teen and his dad, which made me smile.  I hope to do that with my boys one day.
